Sewing to Rebuild

In response to the tornado that devastated Moore, Oklahoma, last week, a project called "Sewing to Rebuild" has been launched over at Pattern Revolution. The goal is to make handmade items (especially basics) in order to show support and to help people start to rebuild. You can read more about the project by checking out this post.

There are several pdf designers offering free patterns to be used, though you can use other patterns as well. They are asking for clothes for boys and girls (especially older children and boys), and there are also links to some bag patterns, as folks need those as well.

I am going to try to sew as many items as I can before the deadline (June 21). I do want to make Samuel a shirt for his birthday, but besides that I plan to focus my efforts on this awesome project.

Samuel loves Cars and I'm going  to use the fabric on the
right for the first shirt I make him

I've already cut out 2 pairs of Too Cute Ruched Shorts (I fit a 2T and a 4T out of the leftovers from Danielle's birthday dress!).

And I'm cutting out a High-Low Ruffled Skirt in a size 11/12, though I have to make a seam in the front because I totally messed up on my fabric estimate.

I also want to make some of the free patterns that are offered--the cute tanks from Fishsticks Designs, and shorts from Designs by Moo.

Oh, and I'd like to make some Sassy Knit Peplum tops as well.

I'm not trying to be a total advertisement for Cole's Corner and Creations, but I think her patterns are cute and modern and yet still basic enough to be sewn quickly. I also think that older girls will like them, and I really want to send clothes that kids would wear, and not just use up leftover and/or ugly fabric :)
